The Daily Grind: What’s the last non-combat activity you did in an MMO?

It’s no secret that today’s MMOs focus almost exclusively on combat. Oh sure, some of them have rudimentary crafting, trading, and housing minigames, but very few of them feature non-combat gameplay options deep enough to replace killing and looting as an alternate playstyle.

What about you, MassivelyOP readers? What’s the last non-combat activity you did in an MMO? Tell us after the break!

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

FeveredDreamer JakeDunnegan Oh, I’m with ya there. Last game I raided heavily in was SWTOR, I believe, and Rift before that. Raiding just doesn’t do anything for me anymore, and whatever thrills I did get from that are pretty well satisifed by well made dungeons, which most games, even Tera (!!!) have. 

Oh, and HIYAS! To a fellow Washingtonian, though, technically, I just south of it, in Virginia. ;)

I’ve spent the last couple days in EQ2 leveling in Adorning.  First I spent about a day getting my Transmuting ability up to 500 so I can turn loot into adornment ingredients, then I started adorning.  The high level adornments from the latest expansion are (1) awesome; and (2) really expensive, so I’d rather make them myself.  I’m at 280/500 Adorning skill, so I’ve got a way to go, but the end is in sight.

In XIV I spent most of yesterday mining Grade 3 Thanalan soil for the Free Company’s garden. Played some Triple Triad at the Golden Saucer, and trained my trusty chocobo.

I cruised around Rohan taking screenshots. Had to test out that new video card!

Pretty much my main activities in ESO involve gathering lore books, crafting mats, and skyshards. I do this more than I actually fight things.

I respected my Templer in ESO yesterday to healing and crafted a Seducer set and 2 Pce Magnus set for the bonuses to Magicka.
That’s non combat right there.
